Feb 28 2006. To promote the release of the USA edition of his book 'Rip It Up & Start Again: Postpunk 1978-1984'
author Simon Reynolds held a panel discussion at Mo Pitkin's on NYC's Lower East Side. Panelists were Connie 'China' Burg (Mars), Steven Daly (Orange Juice), Vivien Goldman, and James Chance (James White & The Blacks). The discussion focused on the zeitgeist of the late 70's NYC scene, its contribution to the genre, and its relation to its UK counterpart.

I'm so glad that this available to see. Simon Reynold's book is a star map tracking the evolution of pop music's most scattered and impressive genre, and being able to see these interviews is a great accompaniment to the book.
